You're in the key of G (E Minor). As far as scales go, you could use G Ionian (major), A Dorian, B Phrygian, C Lydian, E Mixolydian, E Aeolian (minor), or even the E minor pentatonic scale. any of these will suffice. if you're playing a more rock-influenced song, I'd recommend E Aeolian, Em Pentatonic, and C Lydian. if you're playing a more heavy style, C Lydian or Em Pentatonic would work perfectly.

You do realize that if you're in the key of G (or Em) and play any of those scales then its still just G major(or E minor) right? What purpose does it serve to give modal names to the same scale?

He might be referring to the scale positions (ie not understanding what he's talking about, they are the same scale)????

based on this and your response in the other thread, spend the time you're currently using to post attempting to actually learn this stuff

you won't look like a sillyhead who's just rattling off names to make his dick grow

Can I just ask: What is it with guitarists and 'modes'? They're not even proper modes for heaven's sake.

The original Lydian scale goes:

2 2 1

and has nothing to do with playing C major with a different finger pattern.

I think I'm going to go and have a little cry now.

show wasn't bad for the first good handful of seasons but it's never been good enough for me to keep up with it beyond reruns back in high school

was far better than friends and raymond, but that's not really saying much

Sorry to sound like a chauvinistic, but the US shouldn't try and copy the UK's shows...

... and Ricky Gervais is a genius, so...

I suppose you could also categorize that as, "ethnocentric".

OTOH, "The Office" blows. Even the people in Scranton, PA, where the show is supposed to take place, aren't fully on board with that crap. I've seen interviews of people saying, "it puts us in a bad light". I go so far as to avoid movies with people from the show cast in them. I'm still waiting for Steve Correll to say one thing I find funny.

But for a quick return to the issue of ethnocentricity.The simple fact is, people in the UK, and US, have different senses of humor, and different references to draw upon for that humor.

All that said, I bought an early "Genesis" album. I absolutely didn't get it. The slang was completely inaccessible. However, as Phil Collins gained status as a solo artist, the material became much more "colony friendly".

So, I suppose it could be said, that when you're not being "chauvinistic" towards us, (by your own admission), you're pandering to us....

Although, I would like to take a moment to apologize, on behalf of the American people, for Tony Blair being led into disgrace, by the idiot son of the Bush family.

If "Wubba" were a Kennedy, they'd have stored him in an attic.

If you want an American comedy that actually IS funny, I suggest "Two Broke Girls".

Why is this discussion even going on.

And why is 'Genesis' in quotes.

And it isn't necessary to get all of the references and quirky humour to see that early Genesis are great.

Id recommend big bang theory before 2 broke girls. A lot of us sitcoms have really bland uninspired writing. I feel like I've been hearing the same bad jokes since 1992. I'd expect the office to only catch viewers who can relate (people who work in offices)

It's always sunny in Philadelphia wins though, i'd recommend that show to anyone with an actual sense of humor
